These trousers are made of 98% cotton and 2% elastic. They feel velvety to the touch and are very comfortable. They are not slim-fit, but very close-fitting without being skin-tight (in the end, it all depends on how you want to wear them!) and the legs taper to a 4cm hem with a little vent on the outer side of the ankle (2cm). They are cut in a 5-pocket jeans style.
